Episode 84: Regulations Delayed, FAFSA Disrupted, and PSLF in Court

This week on "Off The Cuff," the team digs into why the Department of Education is delaying publishing two highly anticipated regulations—borrower defense and gainful employment—and what that means for students and institutions moving forward. Also percolating at the department, Allie gives an update on intermittent issues with the FAFSA and IRS DRT. Stephen explains the latest news with Public Service Loan Forgiveness, as a group of teachers this week filed a class action lawsuit against a large student loan servicer, and Allie outlines how many student veterans are experiencing hardship due to a backlog in processing GI Bill benefit claims at the Department of Veteran Affairs. Plus, after Megan spots a local celebrity on the metro, she wonders: what would you do if you ran into someone famous?
